My last post about the conference created quite a buzz. I've had many follow-up conversations about the conference and the Leadership Summit. Many of you have told me that you are coming. Some even told me their flight details. When I looked at the registration list, not all of your names were there. (For those who did register, thanks!) Some of you told me you were still trying to decide and you wanted to wait a bit. Later has arrived.
January 31 (Thursday) is the early registration deadline. Registering early does several things: it saves you some money. We can all use that, especially these days.
A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history. --M. Gandhi
Over the years, I’ve come across some true leaders in this movement. These leaders are the ones who create the visions and then, rather than just talking and delegating, they make sure that everything gets done. They’re always looking for what to do next that will make a difference. They’re on the cutting edge of ideas and projects. They tend to be people of broad interests, deep compassion, and solid intelligence in all the senses of that word: intellectual, emotional and spiritual intelligence. They are the changemakers who help society evolve. They are passionate about what they do and can’t imagine being any other way. They are integrators, renaissance lawyers, and collaborators.
We are sad to report the loss of yet another of our pioneers: author of Transforming Practices, Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life (ABA, 2011), columnist for the ABA Journal for several years, and dear friend to many of us, Steven Keeva passed away on December 7. His wife, Jan, was at his side and holding his hand.
We created this video series to honor Steve at the 2009 IAHL conference.
